GOKSHURA is effective in most urinary tract disorders because it promotes the flow of urine, cools and soothes the membranes of the urinary tract, and aids in the discharge of stones. It stops bleeding, strengthens kidney function, while at the same time, nourishing the kidneys. As such, it is a rejuvenative tonic for the kidneys. It also strengthens the reproductive system by increasing semen; it is invigorating to postpartum women.
Gokshura is rejuvenative to Pitta; at the same time, calming Vata with a sedative effect upon the nervous system. It is free of the side effects of most diuretics, and is somewhat similar in properties to marshmallow. It is a good harmonizing herb for most kidney formulas. It is sattvic in nature and promotes clarity. Taken as a milk decoction it is a strong aphrodisiac. With equal amounts of dry ginger, it relieves nerve and back pain. With equal amounts of ashwagandha powder, three grams twice a day, it is a powerful revitalizer. The oil is good for alopecia and premature balding.
Gokshura is a common weed in the United States called Goat’s Head or Puncture Vine, whose powerful medicinal qualities appear unknown here. Another important tonic and rejuvenative for the kidneys is punarnava (Boerhaavia diffusa). It is usually used with gokshura in diuretic formulas.
